Default WIll 295's slow me down?

Im an Auto, with sct xcal 2, and bamachips tune, and slp loudmouths, springs...not much

But i was intersted in getting 295/35/18 in the back, and 255/40/18 in the front? Other that haveing to re-adjust the speedometer...would i have any other problem with that big of a tire in the back?

Performance loss maybe?

thankyou!!

You probably wont have a noticable loss, but what you will definitely notice is that you wont be able to burn out quite as easily as you used to (put in gears and that will change). But you will launch alot better and you will obviously grip alot better. You might want to consider the 275 though for an 18" wheel, though a 295 would be great too

My information is that both those tires sizes are 26 inches high, (well, 26 front and 26.1 rear) so you shouldn't even have to readjust the speedo...
